Hey mama's! I need your advice. Recently my husband and I have been getting a lot of bad reports on my 4 year olds behavior at his school. He has been hitting other kids and using profanity among other things. We got one today actually! Now my mother is off for the weekend and earlier today asked me if she could spend time with her grandsons. I want to let my 4 year old go but I think due to his behavior this week at school that going over to grandma's is not an option. This is mainly because my mom lets the boys do whatever they want when they go over there. Of course they love going over there bc they don't get disciplined whatsoever. I told her he wasn't going to be able to come over bc ofx his behavior but told her she is more then welcome to come over to our house and spend time with them. Now my mother it's all pissed saying things like she doesn't want to spend mothers day with us and that I'm crazy for taking away his grandma time. I know my son is young but he knows that his behavior is not good. Also, he is going to be in kindergarten next year and discipline has to start somewhere. am I wrong punishing my child from spending the night at his grandmothers because of the behaviors he is displaying at school?

He could be acting out for a number of reasons: frustration, attention, ect... but I think you're doing the right thing by not letting him go for sleepovers. My in-laws let my son do whatever he wants, eat whatever he wants and sleep whenever he wants when he's with them and sometimes I think it makes him misbehave more because he's tired and over-sugared.
